    indoor Mark what flowers have been pollinated

    In nature a flower can get pollinated hundreds of times per day (each time a bee visits it). A flower can't really be overpollinated. As for markings ink on the petals won't hurt they fall anyway. Straws or twine are also viable options.

    capsaicin what can i use to dissolve capsaicin crystals

    Grams of capsaicin ÷ (grams of capsaicin + grams of solvent) × 16 million Let say you dissolve 3 grams of capsaicin in 3 grams of alcool it would give : 3÷(3+3) ×16 000 000 3÷6 × 16 000 000 = 8 million scoville Yes for this formula to work you need GRAMS of solvent not ML of solvent.

    capsaicin what can i use to dissolve capsaicin crystals

    Problem is capsaicin is not water soluble so it won't really dissolve in saliva. Hence why pure capsaicin doesn't feel "that" hot

    In this case you can consider 16m as theoretical. If capsaicin is not dissolved in something. It won't reach your pain receptor and simply do nothing. If you know where the scoville scale comes from, 16m unit is real, it really needs to be diluted 16 million times to be undetectable by normal...

    Next best option would be a good dose of compost/composted manure. This will add organic matter to your soil. Problem with sandy soils is that everything gets leached out of it quickly. Organic matter will help retention of useful minerals (nutrients), it will also provide some on its own and...

    True. Even more using hard water that is usually slightly basic. But it doesn't change the fact that adding Ca over Ca-rich water is useless at best and creating problems at worst. In particular too much Ca will inhibit iron uptake wich will end up with very diseased plants

    A soil test is never a bad idea. But whatever your results are a great way to enhance your soil is RCW (ramial fragmented wood), also called BRF (bois raméal fragmenté). Basically its just green branches up to 3" diameter that has been chipped. You simply add a few inch of it on top of your soil...

    Last picture. Some leaves are yellow with green veins. This is a clear chlorosis caused by some deficiency. I suspect magnesium. Try watering them with an epsom salt solution (2 tsp/gallon). If it is indeed your problems your plant should green up in a day or two. It really heals very fast. If...

    pests Containers with Fire Ants

    Never had to deal with fire ants, but for ants in general a mix of 3 part sugar 1 part borax plus a little water to turn into a paste is an effective bait that eventually kills the entire colony when workers bring it back to the queen.

    It's no use fishing while ski doo and atv are fooling around, even when fishing 300' deep (literally). That's why i used to sleep often in my shack (and because it didn't matter getting drunk as hell, no need to drive). In fact, best time to fish in the village is sunday past 3-4 pm, everybody...

    I'm actually impressed by the speed at wich boarding goes. It was already looking like that yesterday at noon so the village DID appear overnight. That being said, ice fishing is a religion around here and many people are fervent believers. Boarding began 2 weeks after the fishing season opened...
